Please help keep the site running

Posted by Tsaress with Comments Off


As you are aware I’ve been having slow speed issues on the site. My site host are now asking me to move to VPS in order not to effect others. It’s on a trial at the moment so that is why it’s not so bad.

If I stay with VPS it will cost 3 times the amount I am currently paying per month.

I do not have that kind of money I do not get paid to run the site.

Please help me keep my sites running well.

Click the below link it gives money directly to my host so you know this is going towards the site.

Twitter and Tumblr Accounts

Posted by Tsaress with Comments Off

Due to time differences it will be quite late when Seventh Son San Diego Comic Con panel is on and I will unlikely be able to be online at same time.

I will however be able to more likely update the tumblr and Twitter accounts faster than the site so please follow them. and @benbarnesonline

Donation and Killing Bono

Posted by Tsaress with Comments Off

We have over 800 visits a day to this site sometimes even 1000 and no one every donates to help keep the site running remember it costs to run this site. This makes me sad, At this time I no longer have the money to get the huge amount of magazines I use to get to scan in for the site.

Please help the site out and donate

Interview with Ben Barnes

“I grew up wanting to be Stevie Wonder, basically,” he chuckles, “so to watch a film about white guys trying to sing soul was extraordinarily exciting to me when I was 17. Killing Bono is a movie about failure, but The Commitments is more about what it takes to pursue your dream. It’s a bit more optimistic; it was Wilson Pickett who pulls up in the car at the end, and they were amazing and they did have their moment in the sun. This is more the moment in the sh*t!”
“I look at my mentor and close mate Colin Firth, who’s just coming into his own,” he continues, “and he’s already done some amazing stuff. I’d like to still have goals like him in 30 years time. I’d definitely like to think of myself as a family man by that point as well because at the moment my focus is very much on my work and giving myself the best possible chance of maintaining this career for the rest of my life.”

Meeting Ben

Posted by Tsaress with 2 Comments

I’ve met Ben twice now and both times he’s been really nice.
First time I met him was in October 2008 when he went to London Expo event.
I managed to met up with a few other fans down there and there is a lot of pictures of Ben in the gallery from it. It was great to hear from him that he recieved a birthday book we had put together in August of that year.
Events > 2008 > London Expo October 2008

The first night of Birdsong I went to see the play and left a card at the stage door. I didn’t hang around but on 27th Nov 2010 I did and met Ben again he was really nice.
